Instructions for Completing Apprentice Work Progress Record
This is the permanent record of your apprenticeship hours and something you can be proud of.
- At the end of each month, ask your supervisor to sign the report and retain this hard copy for your records
- Using the data from the hard copy, enter your hours into the hours tracking section of the AJAC ATS by the 15th of the month following the month you’ve just completed.(i.e., your hours worked in January are due by February 15th).
Use a binder to keep these time sheets in.THIS IS YOUR RECORD OF HOURS WORKED and a back-up to the ATS.
- The worksheet is the work record for one month and each column represents one day.
- Entries are made in the row on the timesheet that has the work code* which corresponds with the work process from section VIII “Work Processes” of the Apprenticeship Standards.
- Total the hours you worked each work process. Total your hours at the end of each month and carry them forward.
Be sure to complete the information for your Related Supplemental Instruction (RSI) hours.
- At the end of each month, record the hours spent in school (RSI) and carry that total forward.
- This way, you will have a continuing record of your work progress and school hours.
When the Apprenticeship Committee periodically reviews your work record, it can evaluate your progress in all phases of your trade to ensure that you are receiving the well-rounded training necessary to become a qualified journey-level worker.
Keep these sheets and the binder you started neat and up-to-date, and upon completion of your training, you will have a record of your training, which you can own with pride.
* The work codes are the trade initials and the work process number (i.e. AM-1 = Aircraft Mechanic Airframe- Basic Electrical). A list of the work code initials can be found in the Apprentice Tracking System and the number is found in section VIII of your Apprenticeship Standards.
